This car has been a hand-me-down through my family. Once it has blessed one person, it moves to the next (Pug's version of "Herbie").
So nothing much has gone wrong with the car. My step brother is a plant fitter, so he looked after it at his yard.
The back drum piston has seized a few times, but comes loose, will replace soon, and the rear suspension is well and truly screwed; quite a bit of rust underneath, but what do you expect from a old car!! (I have just painted much of it).
Since I have had it, nothing much has happened, apart from some idiots stabbing my tire and ripping my wing mirror off!!!
I have just passed my test, and this car, even though it only has 1100cc's of power, it's like a rocket. Not much weight to pull. I can just about lift the back end right off the ground, and I am a big lad.
The only thing I hate about this car is the seats; they are quite crap, they move around a lot, and the passenger seat doesn't click back into place when pulled forward (you're driving along, and your passenger gets a fright because it just goes back into place hehehe).
I have put central locking into it, and an alarm and new speakers.
The side trim on the doors is SO easy to take off; a few star screws and it all pops off.
The driver's window can come down very easily, so someone can come along and pull it down when it's is fully up, but the passenger window doesn't. (if anyone knows how to fix this problem without getting a new one or a second hand one, contact me firstname.lastname@example.org).
The clutch is a bit severe, but you can get used to.
This car is very good to pull wheel spins (here is some advice; when/if you get alloys for it, just wheel spin everywhere, it's great fun! :D hehehe).
If you have a model that has trim along the back of the boot, using trim wax brings it right out; same with the bumpers. In fact all of the trim, door handles etc.
The body work is immaculate. No rust whatsoever. The wheel arches are spotless. It had been well looked after before it came into the family.
Thanks for reading, it's good to tell people how good this car is :D
If anyone can tell me where the RPM outlet is on their engine, it would very good thanks (e-mail is above).
